לה הִכָּהוּ עַל עֵינוֹ וְסִמְּאָהּ, עַל אָזְנוֹ וְחֵרְשָׁהּ, יוֹצֵא לְחֵרוּת. אֲבָל אִם הִכָּה בַּכֹּתֶל כְּנֶגֶד עֵינוֹ אוֹ כְּנֶגֶד אָזְנוֹ וְנִבְעַת עַד שֶׁאֵינוֹ רוֹאֶה וְאֵינוֹ שׁוֹמֵעַ, אֵינוֹ יוֹצֵא לְחֵרוּת.

Seif 35

If the master struck the eye and blinded the slave, or his ear and made him deaf, the slave is freed. However if he struck his eye or ear against a wall and in turn becomes mentally disturbed to the point that he can’t see or cannot hear he doesn’t go free.
